Interest: Ask any entrepreneur — when starting a business, capital is crucial. These days, using traditional methods to obtain seed money is not an option for some people. A growing number of entrepreneurs soon will be able to turn to their friends, neighbors, and online communities for "crowd funding."

Interest: The U.S. doesn’t need a new economic engine. It already has one: entrepreneurship. It’s just that we aren’t getting the mileage out of it that we could. Small businesses are instrumental to the U.S. economy. They employ 50 percent of all private-sector workers and create more than 60 percent of new jobs. The proof is present; entrepreneurs and small-business owners can revive the economy but they need more than just capital.
